Favre will play his last game at Soldier Field on Sunday

Brett Favre is in his 20th NFL season and this will be his last. He confirmed it in an interview with the NFL Network's Steve Mariucci that is scheduled to air on Sunday. 

As much as I hate the guy, I still respect one of the greatest players of all time. Against the Bears, he has an all-time record of 23-11, throwing for 8,373 with 58 touchdowns, 38 interceptions and an 86.8 passer rating. Earlier in Favre's career, he killed the Bears by winning 18 of 20 games from 1994-2003.

I know we've heard this Favre retirement talk in the past, listened to him cry and sob and flip flop between his decision but I think this is it for him.

Favre has taken a pounding this season. He has fractures in his ankle, has elbow tendinitis, his chin was busted the other week and had to be carried off the field. After busting his chin, Favre could barely open his eyes.

He just looks like he is in so much pain and is laboring more than usual every time he walks back to the sidelines. It seems like the bumps and bruises he's absorbing on the field is starting to affect him so much that it's affecting his play and the outcomes of the games. You can see it by how he carries himself on and off the field in pressers.

Aside from his on-the field pain, he has plenty of drama going on off the field and the trouble he's causing his family with the Jenn Sterger incident.
